Former President Trump has toured the stage at the Republican National Convention ahead of his speech Thursday. He did a walk-through this afternoon at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee as he's set to formally accept the Republican party's nomination for president. Tonight, Trump's running mate JD Vance will deliver remarks.       House Speaker Mike Johnson wants the director of the Secret Service to resign following the attempted assassination of former President Trump. Johnson told Fox News today that the security lapses at the Pennsylvania rally were inexcusable. He joins a growing list of lawmakers calling on the protective service's leader to step down.       Special Counsel Jack Smith is appealing the dismissal of former President Trump's federal case over his handling of classified documents. His team filed a notice of appeal Wednesday, well before the 30-day deadline. Judge Aileen Cannon tossed the case out Monday.       The Uvalde cop who was in charge when 19-students and two teachers were murdered in a school shooting is pleading "not guilty" to child endangerment charges. Pete Arredondo was the former Uvalde school district police chief. He's already been fired.       The lawyer for Terrell Davis says United Airlines' apology to the NFL Hall of Famer is not enough. Davis was taken off a flight in handcuffs last week after an incident with a flight attendant. United apologized to Davis and said it removed the flight attendant from duty, but his attorney told TMZ that they want real action on top of the apology, including an investigation.       The WNBA's new media rights deal will reflect the league's soaring popularity. The Athletic is reporting that the league is set to receive around 2.2-billion dollars over the next 11 years in rights fees from its new deals. That means that the WNBA will be bringing in an average of 200-million dollars per season and will be able to make as much as six-times the amount of its current contracts.
